Pre-camp (25 May, Monday)
  • What sounds interesting about this project?
    • we can magnify and see things that are usually not able be seen under a usual microscope. 
  • What do you think you can learn from this project?
    • i can learn how to use the sem. i would also like to explore the difference between an SEM and TEM.
  • Any immediate questions regarding the project?
    • how do i operate it properly?
    • how is it useful?
    • to what extent can an SEM magnify to?
First Day (26 May, Tuesday)
  • What did you do today?
    • today we learnt to use the scanning electron machine (sem) and did a tensile test.
  • What did you learn today?
    • we learnt the functions of an sem and the many uses, and why it is important. in the tensile test we learnt how to use the machine and the importance of atom structure.
  • How do you feel about today’s activities?
    • the sem was interesting and taught me that we can really learn many things from nature by observing the small details. the tensile test taught me that different materials have many different ways of reacting to tensile stress. 
    • i believe that we have a lot to learn from nature as we can see from the tests we have done. 

Second Day (27 May, Wednesday)
  • What did you do today?
    • we did composite material testing and a presentation.
  • What did you learn today?
    • today i've learnt the importance of composites and the many pros and cons of it, especially carbon-fibre.
  • How do you feel about today’s activities?
    • it has allowed me to understand how composites can affect a simple design by making it more efficient in anyway.
  • What new questions do you have regarding the discipline?
    • how can we use this composites more to improve peoples lives?

Third Day (28 May, Thursday)
  • Project Sharing Sessions
    • 1
    • 2
    • 3
  • How do you feel about the SST-NTU Flagship programme?
    • i feel that the sst-ntu flagship has taught me many ways of learning and being a more critical thinking scientist (in a way).
    • i was generally eye-opening and very enjoyable to use and experience things we would possibly never ever have the chance to use again, like the sem.
